Packers CB Davon House has been diagnosed with a transverse process fracture in his back.
Although it sounds bad, it's typically a 1-2 week injury. House was already playing through a shoulder issue, however, so it's possible he misses more time. There are only three games left. House's absence makes an already-burnable secondary that much more attackable. Dec 11 - 2:26 PM

Packers CB Davon House is officially out for the remainder of Sunday's game versus the Browns.

House reached for his lower back while in coverage late in the third quarter and was carted off the field. The Packers wasted no time ruling out for the game after immediately heading to the locker room. House was surprisingly active Sunday after missing nearly the entire week of practice with a shoulder injury.

Packers declared CB Davon House (shoulder) active for Sunday’s Week 14 game versus the Browns. OLB Nick Perry, RB Devante Mays, CB Demetri Goodson, OL Ulrick John, OL Adam Pankey, WR Michael Clark and OLB Chris Odom have been declared inactive for the Packers on Sunday.

Thought to be doubtful, House suiting up is a surprise, but a positive for a secondary that has been hit hard with the injury bug as of late. After struggling most of the year, House did an excellent job a week ago on limiting Mike Evans while shadowing him in coverage. It should be expected that he has the same assignment this Sunday covering Josh Gordon. With that strong performance, House only moved to 77th out 116 qualified cornerbacks in Pro Football Focus’ coverage grades.

Packers CB Davon House (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Week 14 against the Browns.

House matched up with Mike Evans last week and likely would have given Josh Gordon the same treatment this week, so his absence is a blow, particularly after the Packers already placed CB Kevin King on injured reserve.
Dec 8 - 3:46 PM

Packers CB Davon House (hamstring) believes he's close to returning.

House warmed up prior to Saturday's game in Denver, which was the first time he had tested his hamstring since August 5. "I feel good, I feel confident,"he said. "I want to practice." House is likely to start opposite second-round rookie Kevin King when healthy with Damarious Randall a candidate to work in the slot.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said CB Davon House is playing with more confidence than he did in 2016.

"I thought he had an excellent day of practice Saturday," McCarthy added. Signed to a one-year deal in March, House has been working with the first-team defense early in camp, and it sounds like he is well on his way to earning a starting job. Second-round rookie Kevin King has been working in the other starting spot.
Jul 31 - 11:22 AM

Packers signed CB Davon House, formerly of the Jaguars, to a one-year, $2.8 million contract.

The deal includes an $850,000 signing bonus. House visited the Steelers Tuesday morning, but he must not have liked what he heard. It is a homecoming for the corner, who the Packers selected in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. House should compete for a starting job.
Mar 14 - 12:50 PM

Free agent CB Davon House will visit the Steelers Monday.

The Packers have reportedly reached out to House, who played the first four years of his career in Green Bay, but he will get his free agency started in Pittsburgh. Both teams could use help at corner.
Mar 13 - 8:35 AM

The Packers have reached out to free agent CB Davon House.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reports there is "mutual interest." House profiles as a Packers pickup. Green Bay did not want to lose him in 2015 free agency -- but was outbid by Jacksonville -- and because House was released by the Jags, he would not count against the Packers' future compensatory picks. House should be an affordable signing after losing his starting job last season.
Mar 7 - 2:22 PM

Jaguars released CB Davon House.

The expected move leaves just four under-contract cornerbacks on the Jags' offseason roster: Jalen Ramsey, Aaron Colvin, Doran Grant, and Josh Johnson. Inked to a four-year, $24.5 million deal in 2015, House got torched for most of his first year in Jacksonville before lasting four games as a 2016 starter, then getting benched for Prince Amukamara. Amukamara is now a free agent, and the Jags want him back. It would not be surprising if House resurfaced in Green Bay, where his career began and the Packers need cornerback help. They did not want to lose House two years ago, simply getting outbid by the cap-rich Jags.
Mar 4 - 1:41 AM's Ian Rapoport reports the Jaguars are shopping CB Davon House, and are expected to release him if they cannot find a trade partner.

In other words, the Jags will be releasing House. Signed to a "four-year, $24.5 million" contract in 2015, House was benched after four games last season. Cutting House will create $6 million in cap space and leave behind no dead money. The ex-Packer turns 28 in July.
Feb 28 - 5:58 PM

Jaguars CB Davon House doesn't believe his 2016 benching was performance-related.

House played 54 snaps after Week 4. He struggled mightily before his benching. "The situation this year, if you ask me, was not football-related," House claimed. "There is no reason why I shouldn’t have been on the field. But with a new coach coming in, he’s going to see what I can do, he’s going to see what I did last year and they’re going to like what they see." Going on 28, House's $6 million 2017 salary can come off the books with no dead money. It seems like a no-brainer adjustment for the Jags to make.
Jan 2 - 3:05 PM

Jaguars added CB Davon House to the injury report as questionable with an illness.

House missed Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury, but he was a full participant Friday. Things are not getting any better a secondary which is likely to be without Prince Amukamara (hamstring, questionable) and could be without FS Tashaun Gipson, who was listed as questionable after picking up a hamstring injury Friday. Joe Flacco is set up for a big game.

Jaguars CB Davon House (hamstring) didn't practice on Thursday.

It's never a great sign when a player gets added to the injury report midway through the week. With Prince Amukamara (hamstring) also injured, the Jags' secondary could be shorthanded against the Ravens in Week 3.
Thu, Sep 22, 2016 03:23:00 PM

Davon House is third in the league with 18 passes defended this season.

House is on pace to break Rashean Mathis' team record of 21. Ridiculously benched for getting torched by DeAndre Hopkins, who may be the best receiver in the league, House has excelled while playing almost every snap the last five games.
